Certain girls have sex with girls and boys.

Among the bonobos, females dominate males socially. Reinforced by frequent mutual sexual stimulation, their same-sex bonds form the core of bonobo social organization. Males are not excluded from these affections; bonobos of both sexes engage in sexual encounters with males and females alike.

And some girls prefer girls to boys.
